I confess that I love this very lion-like start to March. I am hopeful that means it might have a lamb-like ending!
But, really… this weather is entirely normal, amirite? (And, this was from yesterday – I have not seen today’s numbers yet… but Sunday!! What?!)
My knitting on Tegna marches on wonderfully and I am just past the halfway point on the lace work! I also have a few less stitches also, so the rounds are going just the tiniest bit faster – or at least it seems that way to me!
Every year my church has a woman’s luncheon where items are provided for a Chinese-Style Auction. They have asked me to knit a shawl for them again, so I have been looking at things on Ravelry. But honestly, I think it might be time for me to jump on the Hitchhiker Band Wagon, because I am more than positive that I have dozens of lovely skeins that would work beautifully for it! I even have some gradient skeins that might work well. My question for all you Hitchhiker devotees: How do you feel about a Hitchhiker made with just one skein of yarn? Are there enough teeth? Is it sufficiently wrappable? This inquiring knitter wants to know – please do share your thoughts!
On the reading front, it has been a very good week again.
I finished James Baldwin’s Go Tell it on the Mountain. This book was published in 1953 and it is still profoundly relevant today. The writing is magnificent. If you have not read any James Baldwin, I strongly suggest you do, and this book is an excellent place to start! I highly recommend and I gave it 4-stars!
I also finished Michelle Obama’s Becoming. I listened and it was almost like having Michelle sitting in my living room having a conversation with me. It is excellent and sadly, it makes me long for more Obama’s… much more. 5-stars and this gets my “must read” recommendation!
Katrina Rodabaugh’s Mending Matters was also devoured, and I loved it so much I headed out last weekend to get a copy for my library. If you want to start mending, or start sewing, or start stitching – this book is full of incredible ideas. 5-stars and this is the perfect addition to your stitching library.
That is all I have for the week – and thankfully there was no unraveling! If you wrote a post to share, please leave your link below and thank you!
